Suzlon Wind Energy Corp., the North America arm of Suzlon Energy Ltd., has signed a repeat order with Duke Energy of Charlotte, N.C., to provide 20 units of the S88 2.1 MW wind turbine for a project in the U.S. With this order, the total supply portfolio to Duke Energy increases to 130 MW.

The Silver Sage Windpower Project in Cheyenne, Wyo., is adjacent to an existing wind farm owned by Duke Energy that also utilizes Suzlon's S88-2.1 MW turbines.

"Suzlon played an important role in the success of the nearby Happy Jack Windpower Project, our first in Wyoming," says David Marks, senior vice president of wind energy at Duke Energy Generation Services. "We look forward to building on this success as we develop the Silver Sage Windpower Project."

In addition to supply, Suzlon will provide operations and maintenance through a five-year service agreement with Duke Energy. Suzlon already has provided 29 MW of capacity for the nearby site, and a total of 71 MW to all Duke projects.
